3318 - Who’s Watching the Watchers: What Happens When Your Security Provider Compromises Your Network?

Wednesday, October 10
1:45 PM - 2:45 PM
Location: Floor 2: Galerie 6

The 2017 M.E. Docs cyber-attack that crippled hundreds of companies crafted the blueprints for hijacking a vendor to attack clients through their supply chain. These attacks herald a new generation of supply-chain based attacks that pit vendor against client as they struggle to navigate co-managed risk mitigation and the resulting consumer, regulatory and legal backlash. In 2018, eSentire detected and mitigated an exploit that targeted a key vendor, relied upon by numerous managed security service firms. The exploit was used to deliver a dangerous payload to their client base. If your security vendors can’t protect themselves, how are they going to protect you? In this talk, Mark Sangster will explore these recent supply-chain attacks, delving into the threat intelligence, indicators of compromise, and detection mechanisms.
